We absolutely loved the home - couldn't have asked for anything more. Location was great, view was spectacular, ocean was awesome, place was very clean and safe, everything was perfect!! No need to rent a car, taxicabs were plentiful and cheap (about $5-$6 to get downtown). We will be back - hopefully sooner rather than later!

Location! Luxury! Affordable!

If you want an upscale 2600 sq. ft. condo, privacy, tropical serenity, but close to town we are for you! Our 3 bedroom luxury Condo sits directly on the calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Marazul consists of only 16 units (IMPORTANT! some rentals are one of 50-100) and is located in the exclusive Hotel Zone just a few minutes North of San Miguel. We are close enough to all the great shopping and dining downtown offers, and far enough away from the cruise ship crowds during the day. We are on the 4th floor which affords you to be high enough for privacy and low enough to enjoy the great views of the pool and water.

The kitchen features top shelf GE appliances, and a great array of kitchenware. Cinemax, HBO, 100's of cable channels and ABC, NBC, and CBS on two large TV's one in the living room and one in the Master. ALL THREE BEDROOMS HAVE THEIR OWN PRIVATE FULL BATH, Sealy mattresses, ocean views, and balconies. The master suite and bathroom is very big. We have two balcony terraces, one that looks over the jungle which offers beautiful sunrises (if your up!), and the front balcony which offers our guests breathtaking views of the water and spectacular sunsets. A word about balconies...ours is extremely private (most condos are not) meaning you can see your neighbor and they can see you.

We have Vonage for free phone calls to anywhere in the U.S. and Canada,and free WiFi, which makes being connected (if you want to be) a breeze.

The pool is a very big (one of the largest private pools on Cozumel), and the hot tub sits right at the edge of the carribean. There is also an outdoor shower poolside, perfect for rinsing off diving and snorkel gear. Walk down the steps from the pool and into the carribean to snorkel and find all the sea life you want. Steps and a pool ladder are there to get you in and out easily. For golfers The Cozumel Country Club is only 1 mile away. For divers or sport fisherman the marina is literally a half mile away where many of the dive and charter operators originate from.

Thanks again for considering our home!!

Why Mark Trahan chose Zona Hotelera Norte

We bought at Marazul because it is wonderfully close to town, but far enough from the cruise ship madness during the day. Most of the units are owned by well to do locals. The oceanfront pool is empty most of the week, which is great for us and our guests. The local Governor is a resident!

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

We were so incredibly impressed with this condo. The condominium complex is very small. We never had to worry about not being able to get a chair at the pool and our stuff was safe. Super quiet. We felt like we were the only ones there. The condo was clean. The pool area was very well maintained. More than enough closet space - especially in the master and first guest room. Kitchen very well stocked. Grocery stores were close the elevator made carrying up groceries easy. We did bring some hand sanitizer. The fridge has a container of bottled water directly into the freezer for cold water and ice - so very nice as you cannot drink the tap water. Very handy to have access to the washer and drier while we were there. Each room has its own thermostat and A/C controls. Be sure to spend at least one sunset on the balcony. Alex is the local property manager and he met us there the second morning to be sure we didn't need anything. He was easy to reach during the trip with any questions or needs. The owner, Mark, is extremely knowledgable of the area and easy to work with.

EXTRAS: There were PLENTY of beach towels and extra sheets if needed. Also, the laundry room has extra flippers, floats and noodles for the pool. There were bathrooms on the ground level so you did not have to go back upstairs. There were extra water bottles to use to take down to the pool. We took hammocks (ENO's) and hung them between the trees in the grassy area. Wonderful breeze!

Travel to town was easy as there were always taxis driving by out front, headed to town after dropping off passengers at the larger hotels just north. Just wave one down. An evening in the Plaza will be very enjoyable.

Although you can technically "see" the ocean from the smallest guest room, it is through a very small window and set back between two condos. The other side of the room is a large glass wall view of the jungle and is very pretty. The controls on the oven were difficult to understand. We never did actually understand which of the options was simply "bake". :)

There are two lobster houses just north. Pricey, but amazing food and service. We recommend the one adjacent to the Key lime pie factory (we also recommend the key lime pie). Authentic food: Mr. Taco, los otates, la Catrina, and el pique as well as Dona Chary. Off the beaten path, safe to eat, and cheaper. Want a little nicer? El Moro and Casa mission.

Can't wait to return!

Perfect place to chill

  • 5 of 5

So nice! Start with a great location add a great building, plus a roomy and super clean condo and it adds up to Marazul #401. Nicely furnished with no clutter. The views are unbeatable. Owner and local management are accommodating. Pool and ocean areas are always maintained. If you are looking for a loud, party place, go elsewhere. Anyone else will feel welcome.
